14 Feb Time to Talk Day
On Thursday 6th February, we marked Time to Talk Day; a day which aims to raise awareness and reduce stigma for those living with mental health conditions. There were assemblies and tutor activities which encouraged students to get talking about mental health. At break and lunch time we had ‘Talk Time’ in Main Street and ‘The Jokers’ were on hand to help people to smile! Ms Doshi ran some guided meditation sessions too.
Staff were treated to tea bags and biscuits in their pigeon holes and cakes were on sale in the staff room throughout the day to raise money for the charity MIND.
Many thanks to all the staff who were involved in the preparation and a big thanks to Kane, Bradley, Lewis, Adiyat, Amy, Maisie, Rachel, Goda, Chiara, Mayo, Liam, Laura, Abigail, Ellie and Sandra who helped out preparing for the event and on the day.
